Tim Robinson’s Brand Of Angry Alienation On ‘I Think You Should Leave’ Is Really An Overeager Grasp for Friendship In The Midst of Extreme Loneliness | Decider
The natural state of a Robinson character can be triangulated between flabbergasted, flummoxed, and flustered, its symptoms including a strangulated tone of voice and slightly-off stroke-brain speech along the lines of “I thought there was monsters on the world.” Everything about his body language suggests a man holding a lot back; his hunched forward lean, brittle arms pressed to his side, and jerky movements all carry stress that inevitably comes spilling out as he reaches the end of his wits. As a competitor on a faux Price Is Right show (another go-to sketch template oriented around nonsensical regulations), he nearly asphyxiates while wearing a VR headset, gasping that “I don’t know how to work the body” in a pretty good summation of this type’s chronic physical short-circuiting.

Guns: Supreme Court case puts Second Amendment groups in a bind
Zackey Rahimi's legal troubles began in 2019 when he pulled out a gun and fired at a passerby who witnessed him dragging his girlfriend through a parking lot.

Months later, after getting into an accident, Rahimi repeatedly shot at the other driver, court records show. A year later, he threatened another woman with a gun and was charged with aggravated assault. In 2021, he fired several times into the air after a friend's credit card was declined at a burger joint near Fort Worth, Texas.

Rahimi's case is now before the Supreme Court in a blockbuster Second Amendment challenge that may prove especially thorny for the gun lobby and the court's conservative wing. That's because Rahimi is challenging his conviction under a federal law that bars Americans who are subject to restraining orders from owning guns.
